NYC Schools Featuring Kids' Book That Glorifies AOC, Mocks McConnell, And Disses Christianity

The lefties running the New York City school system are continuing to do their part to insidiously propagandize and groom children as a means of fundamentally changing our culture, heritage, and society at large.

The latest effort comes in the addition of a book by an extremist author that glorifies one of the least-talented members of Congress — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a self-avowed democratic socialist — mocks and ridicules Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), and disrespects Catholicism.

The book is aimed at fifth-graders and is available through New York City Public School libraries, the New York Post reported. In addition to hailing AOC and mocking McConnell, it features a “queer” black child named Demetrius who feels a sense of “shame” while in church.

“What You Don’t Know: A Story of Liberated Childhood” was written and illustrated by Anastasia Higginbotham and is currently on a reading list for the school system’s approaching “Mosaic” curriculum. In the tome, Demetrius attempts to find a friend “who’s queer like me” while his “spirit” meets Jesus in a Catholic church.

“Churches can preach all they want about love,” the boy says. “The only thing that I feel when I’m here is shame.”

When Jesus tells him “everyone is invited to love and be loved,” Demetrius points out a man whom the author confirmed was McConnell and says, “Even — ?” to which Jesus replies, “Yes.”

The Post, which examined a copy of the book, reported that it states, “We will rewrite the rules we live by and love the world into balance,” and features a picture of Demetrius and his parents watching AOC and fellow “Squad” members Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on TV.

On Amazon, a blurb about the book says it “delves into queerness, Blackness, and the love that dismantles whiteness.”

One mother from Staten Island said she thought the book was obviously anti-Catholic and that. With its mixing of religion and politics, she added that the tome “has no place in the classroom.”

“It’s a horrible book,” the Staten Island mom told the Post, adding that the principal at her child’s school refused to offer it.

Higginbotham is the author of other children’s books, including “Death Is Stupid,” “Tell Me About Sex, Grandma,” and “Not My Idea: A Book About Whiteness.” The latter work is about a child who “connects to the opportunity and their responsibility to dismantle white supremacy.”

The Daily Wire adds:

Among other books listed in the Mosaic curriculum were “The Bell Rang,” which attempts to explain slavery to kindergartners; “I’m Not a Girl,” which is for first-graders and discusses being transgender; and “Our Skin,” which is for kids as young as two, and blames the idea of race and racism on white people, the Post reported.

Reached for comment by the Post, Higginbotham lashed out at her critics.

“I never expected people who cling to the oppressive, dying institutions of patriarchy and white supremacy to like that book,” she said.

That’s exactly what we expected someone like her to say.
